Conquering Columbus Podcast
About This Show
Conquering Columbus is a brand for those across Central Ohio who are determined to find a way to align their skills, values, and talents in order to make a lasting and long impact during their lifetime on the city of Columbus. With a podcast as our medium, we research and interview those across Columbus, and at times abroad, who have achieved success in areas ranging from business and athletics, to medicine and beyond.
The goals of the Conquering Columbus podcast is to document these individuals stories – from how they got to where they are today, to gaining a better insight into who they are and how they think – and provide our listening base in the city with valuable content to apply to their own lives. We have long term hopes that the podcast will become a central hub for all things extraordinary in Columbus, ultimately inspiring those across the city and connecting dots that otherwise may have been left unconnected for the worse.
